I have installed, restored and handled my two Xenforo licenses countless of times. Now that I am looking to bring up a new forum on one of my licenses, the installation simply refuses to work and I am stuck on troubleshooting any further.
Once the index.php file of the install directory is accessed, it displays everything as usual, but upon clicking the button the URL does change to step1, yet I am still stuck on the first page.
I have already tried to narrow this issue down, have tried disabling pagespeed, memcached, the opcache, whiped the entire cache and also tried different browsers(Chrome, Edge, Waterfox, Safari), whereas Safari and Edge had never even visited any site of mine, so they could not have possibly locally cached the files.
This issue persists on all versions of Xenforo and started a few weeks ago when I shut down my old site and realized the login to the admin sector was looping(redirecting to the login page again), which I did not pay attention to since it was going down anyway.
All help would be appreciated!
The basic structure of my server:
PHP 5.6 with Zend Opcache and Memcached(this also happened on 5.4. I literally updated to 5.6 at this point to see if it would fix it and because I have been meaning to do it for a while.)
Mariadb with all tables on InnoDB(duh)
PS: I am sorry if I may respond slowly. I am a busy man just trying to figure out why I get stuck on installing XF after it has worked so many times with no changes to my setup except for the domain.
